It's actually to indicate that the motherboard has passed an extended server-level hour durability test. Unlike many boards Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK Marvell Storage seen recently, the M.

There's a Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK Marvell Storage smattering of PCI-E slots, with three 16x slots running at x16, x8 and x4 speeds respectively, top to bottom plus two 1x PCI-E slots with one handily located above the top 16x slot a great location for sound cards and the like. Gigabyte has also taken the liberty of including two PCI slots as Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK Marvell Storage - potentially useful if you're transplanting older devices to save some cash. Click to enlarge The jet black PCB and yellow details make this a sleek if slightly understated motherboard but it's certainly good-looking. The layout is problem-free too with practically every connector - even the front panel audio, being located on the edge of the PCB.

Nvidia's SLI endorsement only applies to two-card rigs. Users can choose to run one M. A couple of extra SATA ports from an auxiliary Marvell controller pick up the slack, but they're slower than the Z97 ports, and they can't participate in the same driver-managed RAID arrays.

That power connector next to the SATA ports has nothing to do with storage, by the way. The rest pass through a four-way hub linked to just one of the Z97's SuperSpeed ports.

Folks who are running a lot of high-bandwidth devices will want to avoid those shared ports. Too bad Gigabyte doesn't identify which ones are which.

At least the manual clarifies that the front-panel USB 3. Apart from a DisplayPort out, the rear cluster covers all the important bases. Like Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK Marvell Storage boards in this price range, the Z97X-UD5H has a high-end Realtek codec, a separate amplifier chip, and isolated traces for the audio circuitry. The Realtek drivers offer speaker virtualization support, but they can't encode multi-channel bitstreams for digital output. We'll discuss the audio in a little more detail in the performance section of the review. There's more ground to cover before we get to that, including some of the Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK Marvell Storage smaller, builder-friendly features. Traditional shields are lined with sharp slivers of metal that can get caught in the rear ports and slice fingers easily.

A bunch of other little touches can be found around the memory slots. The POST code Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H-BK Marvell Storage is handy for troubleshooting, and there are voltage probing points for obsessive overclockers. Gigabyte did miss a few important details. Connector blocks are nowhere to be found, making front-panel wiring needlessly difficult. There's no way to cold boot directly into the firmware, a feature we've used frequently on the other Z97 boards we've tested. These may seem like minor things, but the quirky little details are what increasingly separate the best enthusiast boards from the rest.
